Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment

Do you have swollen, discolored gums? Suffer from frequent bad breath? You may have a common oral disease known as periodontal gum disease. Luckily, with gum disease treatment from our periodontal dentist at Village Family Dentist in Granville, OH, it can be managed!

What is Gum Disease?

Periodontal disease, often called “gum disease” is an oral condition that can cause gums to pull away from teeth. This results in pockets forming around the teeth which increase the risk of bacterial buildup, decay, and infection. Ultimately, gum disease can result in loose teeth, complete tooth loss and even spacing issues. Wondering if you suffer from gum disease? Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Swollen Gums
  • Irritated/Red Gums
  • Bad Breath
  • Loose Teeth
  • Tooth Misalignment
  • Pus/Infection in Gums

Granville Gum Disease Treatment

  • Tooth Scaling – At Village Family Dentist we have specialized dental tools which allow our periodontists to remove plaque, tartar, and infection from the gum line and affected teeth.
  • Root Planing – Once tooth scaling has been finished, the tooth root will be smoothened to make attachment and healing of gums easier.
  • Periodontal Surgery – For patients with severe cases of gum disease, periodontal surgery may be necessary. This surgical procedure allows us to restore and regenerate periodontal structures necessary to support teeth, allowing gums to return to their normal form and function.
